You only need basic tools and you can use small piece of scrap leather.
They are really lightweight, and they don't get mess up like the real feather one.
Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED
-transparent leather acrylic (I used a acrylic medium, UV and water resistent, that dry really flexible, of a brand "Golden");
-copper or gold dust;
+some decoration that you want (little chains, mini studs, beads...)
